DiamondBOX Version 1.10
Nikolaj Kiær Thygesen has created a website for his Amiga painting program 'DiamondBOX' which you can access via the title link. The program is GFX compatible and requires at least AmigaOS 3.0, 8 MB of RAM, 1 MB free harddisk space, an Amiga with CPU 68020+, and of course a bit of creativity.

1.) Changes in staffing level:
Our team now exists of 10 staffers. Rico Pook took over the web design for us and we would like to cordially welcome him on this occasion.

2.) Domain:
X-CELLENCE at last could take their domain and is reachable under, now.

3.) Cooperative team management:
We separated X-CELLENCE into divisions. Each of the divisions is working on their project independent from the other teams. This allows maximum of flexibility which is especially advantageous in the shrinking Amiga market.

4.) Wanted ....
Due to division of X-CELLENCE we are facing a staffing problem. We still are wanting graphicians and programmers. For those we would prefer people out of the Amiga community. Graphicians should be familiar with 2D/3D tools on AMIGA and/or PC. They would work in the divisions "GOLD" and "EAST".
I.e.: "SCR2K" (FunRacer) and "NYN" (3D ActionAdventure Shooter). We are exclusively wanting programmers for the AmigaDE. The Classic market is no longer taken into account by us. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Alternative: Sony Vaio with Crusoe-CPU
The Sony notebook Vaio Picturebook/C1VE comes out very innovative: it's equipped with a Crusoe CPU and an integrated camera and weighs less than two pounds. Does the notebook worth a price of 4,500DM?

This notebook of the Sony C1V line is fast in compared to PDA and quite slow in compared to a 'real' notebook. But the price for it is placed in the notebook range where 4,500DM are not any longer a dram, meantime. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga2001 - 1. April - Tip
Press release: Some of you have commented on our Amiga2001 show falling on April 1st. If you are not familiar, April 1st in the U.S. is called April Fools Day. A day when some pull pranks. To answer your concerns about the last day of the show being held on April 1st, all I can say is...

"The joke's on our competitors. They're going to feel like it's 1985 all over again!"

Anyone familiar with the original release of the Amiga should know how this statement applies.

See you in St. Louis in just over a week. Remember, the Banquet is going to be something special. We only have a few tickets left, so get your orders in now.
